Hl'HL (IBES AT SULZKH
Warner. Frawley and Brown
Make the Galleries Laugh
After They Vote.
Al.ltANT, April 29. Three Senators
took turns at criticising and ridiculing
(Jov. Sutzor to-day.
WaKner, the Democratic leader, and
Ilrown, the Hepubllcan leader, made
caustic remarks In the debate which
preceded the continuation of the Gov
ernor's nominations of John II. Delaney
of Brooklyn to be State Commissioner of
.Kconomy and Ktllclency at fl'J.OOO a
'year for five years; John N. Carlisle of
Watertown to be State Highway Com
missioner for live years at J10.000 a
year, and Richard O'Keefe to be I'ort
Warden of New York city at $2,500 for
three years.
Then James J. Frawley, chairman of
the Finance Committee, poked fun at
I the Governor for his vacillating action
on certain bllK
Chester C. I'latt, secretary to the
Governor, Issued another interview at
tacking Senator Urnwn for his state
ment regarding the Governor and pick
ing flaws In Senator Ulauvelt's defence
of his primary law amendments,
Gov. Sulzer himself Issued a red hot
statement In answer to Senator brown's
'""' Governors mental U
" . '"i" ''
Governor Is crazy." Senator lirown said.
"I feel sorry for Hrown. He Is In hW
dotage," retorted Gov. Sul.er.
'Just like a happy family party." said
one of the party of Connecticut legisla
tors In Albany to see bow New York
State conducts legislation.
The Governor started the ball rolling
early in the morning when he Inter
viewed hlm-elf on the speech of Senator
Hrown and gave out n statement In
which he said'
"This Mr. Hrown of Watertown is a
relic of the old mossback days, one of
the survivors of the lllack Horse Cav
alry of unsavory memories. He cannot
hurt me. He Is a political fosll of the
paleozoic age In our State politics. He
Is Irresponsible that Is responsible only
to his master. Boss Barnes."
The Senators had much fun at Sena
tor Brown's expense when they lead the
Governor's reply, ami then they hiM
more mirth when Senator Wagner and
Senator Brown went after the Governor
again. Republicans said things uncom
plimentary to Gov Sulzer for his ap
pointment of Delaney, and this led Sen
ator Wagner to make a general state
ment In regard to the language the Gov
ernor useil In vetoing the Blauvelt elec
tion law amendments.
Senator Wagner said It hurt him and
other Senators to think that the Gov
ernor should acciue them of being dis
honest and attempting to fool the people
after they had done all that could be
done for his legislation "Just because we
refused to be stampeded for his direct
jnimary bill In the closing week of the
session."
It also grieved Senator Wagner to
think that he and other Democrats were
going to be forced out of their party be
cause "If we disagree with the Governor
we are false and dishonorable men."
Senator Brown remarked that he "no
ticed the Governor had issued an apol
ogy for the matters that I called atten
tion to last evening," nnd said it wns
satisfactory to him. but he wanted to
call Senator Wagner's attention to the
Governor's declaration in his inaugural
speech that he was "going to walk the
path called straight." Then Senator
Brown made the Senators and galleries
laugh by quoting the Bible to show that
the "path called straight" and Ananias
had very close relations.
When the Governor's attention was
called to Senator Brown's adaptation of
the Bible reference to the present case
he smiled and sold:
"There are too many Important things
to take care of to pay any attention to
Brown. But the more Brown of Water-
town reads the Bible the better off he
will be."
Senator Frawley's turn came later In
the afternoon. He talked in opposition
to two bills Introduced at the request
of Gov. Sulzer repealing the State bond
Interest bills introduced by Senator
Frawley, which became laws last week
by the Governor's signature.
Gov. Sulzer was misinformed when
he decided to seek the repeal of the
laws, Senator Frawley said, declaring
that if the repeal bills are passed In a
few days the Governor "might be ex
pected to send an emergency message
demanding the repassage of the Frawley
bills."
The Senator took another slap at the
Governor by referring to his announced
"withdrawal" of tho bill doubling the
tax on transfers of stock, by asserting
that the Governor might at any time
this week be expected to "give out col
umns about his withdrawal of some
other bill."
The nomination of Mr. Delaney was
confirmed by a party vote of 83 to 12,
except that Senators Bussey of Wyom
ing, Emerson of Warren, I'ulmer of
Ulster and Ormrod of Monroe, Repub
licans, voted with the Democrats. The
nomination of Mr. Carlisle was con
firmed without comment by unanimous
vote, an was the O'Keefe nomination.

that she wanted no men to take part

"They might be clublied," she added,

told. "If a large number of children are
taken to the City Hull and their moth

public charity, the city could send them

children to be scattered about the State,"
said Miss Flynn. "All we want the

Miss Flynn said she has ircelved te

"Only ieven." leplled the child.

comment Mr. Wool worth said that he
had asked Cass Gilbert, the architect,
how high the building was and that
Mr. Gilbert had answered It wns "N"

by triangutatlon.

MYSTERY IN MURDER !

BOOB" ' WALK KB IS ONE
Satisfies District Attorney
lie Was Merely Visiting
Paul Kelly.
When Jerry Malda, known to the pa
trons of the little Italian restaurant at
1 19 Mulberry street as "Jerry the Lunch- j
man," was shot to death early yesterday
morning in front of 242 West Forty-lltst
street, which Is hut n door or two from
Paul Kelly's Stage Auto Kxchange, Po
lice Headquarters and underworld elr
cles found It the most Interesting Item
ln the day's news. Not that Jerry him
self was Interesting, but many wondered
at the reason for his murder.
It was suggested that Jerry hud I
turned Informer nnd given away tlu
plans for the robbery of a paymaster at
Great Jones street and the Bowery some
months ago. It was also rumored that
Jerry had been seen to visit the Criminal
Courts Building nnd flint he was sus
pected of knowing, too much about the
killing of Chick Tucker at a button fac
tory at 130 Hast Fifty-ninth street ten
days agt.
Police and the District Attorney's
office denied nil knowledge of Jen. v. As
to the shooting of Chick Tucker, It was
remembered that Chick was said to be a
member of the Paul Kelly c.-owtl and In
this connection the place where Jerry
wns killed became Interesting.
But most Interesting of all was the
fact that one of the men held for a time
by the police after the shooting, James
Nolan, a gray haired chauffeur, said
that he happened to be sitting at the
wheel of his taxicab Just outside Paul
Kelly's place because Boob Walker and
another man had ridden up there with
him a little while before anil had asked
him to wait until they came out.
Boob Walker went to Assistant Dis
trict Attorney Deacon Murphy's office
later In the day and explained his move
ments so satisfactorily that he was not
detained Ills presence was requested
because of an unfortunate reputation
Mr. Walker has of being near at hand
when there Is trouble. He was sitting
at a table with Herman Rosenthal the
night the gambler wns shot Just outside
of a icstaiintnt a shoit walk from where
Jerry was killed and his name has been
mentioned In connection with the kill
ing of Spanish Louis, Herman Rosen
thal's "strong arm" man mentioned not
as a participant In that crime, but na
one who, If he would, probably could
tll the police the "Inside gossip."
But, ns has been said. Boob Walker,
now a prosperous saloon keeper In Fast
Fourteenth street, satisfied the District
Attorney's otllce that It was merely a
coincidence that be happened to be near
by when Jerry Malda was shot and also
that there was nothing unusual in the
circumstance that he took a taxicab at
Thirty-seventh street nntl Seventh ave
nue to ride four blocks to Paul Kelly's
garage and kept It waiting while he
visit -d
Whatever the reason for the murder.
,Ierr Mnida was walking along West
Forty-first street In the early dawn
when several men slipped out of the
shadows and opened fire. Five of the
bullets took effect and be dropped nn
the sidewalk a few feet In front of
Nolan's taxicab. Policemen arrested
Nolan and s1 other men In the vicinity.
Four of the prisoners were held with
out hail later by Coroner Felnberg.
They are Sante Harbaro, 2:i years old, of
SOS West 1 1 6th street; James Jesto, IS,
of IIS Mott street. Frank Tedesco, '-'3.
of 25 Stanton street, a barkeeper In

said to have police records. Viscerta.
known In Harlem's Little Italy ns Joe
Pep, was detained recently and ques
tioned about the murder of Amodeo
Huonomo at First avenue and 113th
street
It was noticed that neither the
prisoners nor Malda lived near or were
accustomed to frequent the scene of the
shooting. Assistant District Attorney
Murphy suggested that It had been
thought best to do the shooting In n
district where none of the principals
weie well known. He said he was con
vinced that none of Paul Kelly's friends
were Interested and added that the last
thing they would have wished was that
kind of trouble so near home

IF CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS
with his Caravel, the "Santa Maria," Discovery
Ship of America, were in New York Harbor to-day
what would you not give to be able to tread her
historic decks? You cannot estimate it. And yet
are you missing an opportunity equally great?
Are you allowing that world famous old Ship
(launched 1790 A. D.), the oldest ship afloat in all
the Seven Seas to-day, the only Prison Ship left in
the wide world; the grimmest, greatest ship relic
on earth; the Convict Ship "SUCCESS," to go un
seen by you? This remarkable vessel, raised from
the bottom of Sydney Harbor, has made history
through three centuries. She is to-day un
changed after her century and a quarter of tragic g
existence. She is now as she was when she was
Commodore Ship of England's Felon Fleet en
gaged in the transportation of doomed wretches
from England to the Antipodes. On her are shown
the original Dungeons and Death Chambers, the
Whipping Posts, the cruel Branding Irons, the
Manacles, Punishment Balls, Leaden-Tipped Cat-o'-Nine-Tails,
the Coffin Bath and other instru
ments of torture and restraint.
Leaders of.public opinion everywhere have pro
claimed her a poignant object lesson in the re
form of humanity and the progress of civilization.
Governor Foss, the "Pardoning Governor" of Mas
sachusetts, a sincere and practical advocate of
prison reform, wrote of her:-
